Mariana Martins was born and lives in São Paulo. In addition to painting and drawing, she is known for her collage and calligraphy, developed through the long-term series ‘Diplomas’, which she has been producing since 1976, and in which she explores the imposing, empty aesthetics of official certificates. Since 2010, she has been exploring three-dimensionality in objects and sculptural installations made from resin. The series ‘Cidades-Móveis’ (Furniture/Cities), dioramas installed in pieces of furniture, and ‘Doces-Objetos’ (Sweets/Objects), sculptures in the form of cakes and jellies, mark her current phase of work.
